The innovation one is the one that gets me. There have been plug and play sports devices for years before the Wii came out. I would think Trauma Centre would be more deserving than that.
 
Could someone more intelligent than me please put the line in that hides the second half of the post so that it doesn't make the front page stretch down half a mile?
 
SWEET Crackdown won two awards!!!!!!!!!!!!!! My favorite game on the 360.
